Diego Simeone's side has been a contender for many years, but found it difficult to end the duopoly of Real Madrid and Barcelona as the best team in Spain.
A strong start to the season put Atletico Madrid in a good position to challenge this season.
Atleti won 10 of the first 12 games in 2020-21 before coming crashing down to earth with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of local rivals Real Madrid in December.
Inconsistent form early in 2021 allowed Real and Barca to catch up, but only Atleti's Madrid rivals can snatch the title on the last day of the season.
How to watch Real Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid on US TV
Atletico Madrid can win the 2020-21 La Liga title on Saturday with a win at Real Valladolid.
Atleti needs to match or better Real Madrid's result to secure the title, with its city rivals taking on Villarreal at home.
Valladolid is fighting for La Liga survival, so this is also a huge game for the hosts.
Saturday's home side has won just five games this season and needs to make that six to stand any chance of staying in the top tier.
It will be without both Raul Garcia and Kenan Kodro because of injury, while both Ruben Alcaraz and Roberto Jimenez are suspended.
Fabian Orellana is recovering from injury and is unlikely to feature.
Atleti will be without the services of Stefan Savic who has to serve a suspension.
Thomas Lemar is also expected to miss out due to a hamstring injury.

Atletico Madrid in La Liga table
Atletico Madrid knows its title hopes are in its own hands heading into the last game of the season.
Barcelona and Sevilla had both been in the title race until recent weeks, but only Atletico and Real Madrid remain in the race for the Spanish crown.
As La Liga separates teams through head-to-head records rather than goal difference, a point would not be enough to guarantee the title for Atleti.
This is because Real Madrid has the upper hand in the two games between the two sides, winning 2-0 at home while the result at the Wanda Metropolitano was a 1-1 draw.
